Sustainable Floating House Concept


Sustainable-Floating-House-Concept-2 Sustainable-Floating-House-Concept-1

Designed by Singapore-based architect Dymitr Malcew, the sustainable floating house is the perfect way to get away from all the daily stresses one experiences living in an urban environment. This house literally floats on the water, and thanks to the floor to ceiling windows adorning the dwelling, residents get to fully enjoy these 360-degree ocean views from sun up to sunset. The home was created for French firm H2ORIZON, and was constructed from sustainable materials. The residence is quite spacious with 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, living room kitchen, and terrace. The home also features luxury finishes throughout, and with the ability to gently float through the water, you’ll be able to enjoy everything nature has to offer without causing any disruption.

Manhattan Micro Loft By Specht Harpman Architects


Specht-Harpman-Micro-Loft-2-render-600x652 Specht-Harpman-Micro-Loft-1

It’s really hard to make 425 square feet look spacious but Specht Harpman Architects managed to do just that in this once awkward New York City apartment that’s set at the top of a six-story building. By creating  living platforms, they were able to accommodate all the necessities an apartment might need while keeping the space open and bright. Helping with that was the fact that they were working with over 24 feet of vertical space, making it possible to create the multiple layers of  rooms. The compact bathroom is hidden away on the bottom floor beneath the staircase. While the kitchen is small, it remains open to the living room. They kept the cabinets and countertops white which helps keep it bright and airy. Every detail was kept simple as not to overwhelm the tight quarters and it really appears larger than the actual square footage. Up the first set of stairs you have the bedroom layer which seems to almost float above the living room below.

Smart Mirror 2.0


01 04

From the kitchen to the bathroom or living room creative and useful furniture and home decor help us create a house to love. And it’s much more interesting than ordinary products make unordinary things. For example, designer Robert Grynkofki created the Mirror 2.0, which uses voice command, face and gesture recognition technology. Two LCD displays are placed behind a one-way mirror with a camera for face recognition, sensors for motion control and a microphone for voice control. To keep you entertained the mirror plays your music or movies, displaying your e-book or streaming the news. If that is not enough, it even communicates reminders or gives you updates on the weather; it can moderate the room temperature and dim the lights.

29 Square Meters


29squaremeters_00

As the name suggests, “29 square meters” is an apartment which covers exactly that amount of space (roughly 312 sq ft). Located in Wroclaw, Poland, the tiny home has been efficiently maximized by local architecture firm 3XA, who added a semi-mezzanine (an entire second floor level was not possible due to the restricting 12ft ceilings) above the bathroom and hallway, allowing for a rather spacious sleeping area. Below, the living room, kitchen and dining area were all knocked into one open-plan space, giving a sense of freedom and airiness. Additionally, to deceive the senses, a door leading to nowhere was added to one of the walls.

Ahmedabad-based (India) design practice Hiren Patel Architects have completed The Courtyard House project. Completed in 2012, the stunning property resides in Ahmedabad, Gujrat, India. The Courtyard House was designed with a grid of 7’x7’. The house has been designed in such a way that all living spaces and passages face the  garden, which was also the main design concept, thus creating a central courtyard which holds the reflection pool making it a major design element. This also makes the design an introvert one, leaving the garden at the back of the property but still visible and accessible from all the rooms of the contemporary Indian house.

The formal living room comes first along with two bedrooms followed by a 9in wide passage parallel to the central courtyard and reflection pool. The passage ends with the dining and family room. This area is is utilised to its maximum, thus has a big verandah on all three sides, which adds the value to the north side garden. This luxury Indian property has a large size of openings and skylight to allow ample amount of light to flood the rooms throughout the day. It is also a crucial feature in Ahmedabad climate. Light is essential but not scorching heat. Screens and deep verandah protect these huge openings from the harsh sun. Verandahs also become wonderful outdoors spaces during relatively cool evenings and mornings. The contemporary Indian property is made of RCC roof structures covered with wood. Also verandah and upper rooms are covered with wood. Floors are covered with natural marble stone and wooden planks. Custom designed doors and windows are made of wood and laminated glass.
